    It seems as the Rock has struggled with a long alcohol addition and is now realizing that the ones he loves and cares about soo much abandoned him and that its time to make the journey through rehab and start a new beginning. With the start of of his long road to recovery he makes friends (Tree & River) who stand by his side and support him as they too have traveled this dark road. Things happen, Tree gets shot, River is kidnapped and just before Rock is about to take the red pill... He wakes up. Good Morning.

    Hope this helps! :D

    LOl was his a joke? sorry if it wasn't

    I know this poes is about discrimination in America on the past and how the Rock, River and Tree hope for a better future.....but I know there's more to that...and thats why I came here.
